Picked up a road kill beaver this week and took it out to my bait, just very puzzled about the notches in each side of her tail, i seem to remember seeing damaged tails before but it was like someone took a knife and cut two or three notches down each side 2-3 inch deep.They have totally healed and must have happened a long while ago, just wondering if anyone has seen this or similar injuries and what would cause them?Thanks Kev

Definitely from fighting. If the tail is 5" wide and no damage you can sell them with your fur in the fall. They make wallets out of them.

I havent found a roadkill beaver yet. Surprised.

This is the second road kill beaver ive seen in a couple weeks, the first i saw was probably the largest beaver i ever saw and regretted not picking it up for bait and returned to get it a few hours later and it was already picked up.I seen another this week walking on the edge of a road near a small brook.High water must be keeping them on the high ground, LOL

Beavers injure their tails when they use it as a wedge when they fall trees :lol:

I saw a beaver road killed on the bridge in Jemseg years ago I think he was trying to get to the other side


Sorry could not resist

TSINB is right , its ok to pick up Furbearer road-kill only if its in season and you have a licence , otherwise same penalty as poaching.

It would be pretty crappy to lose your hunting privileges over a slice of road pizza.
